Mixed martial arts was originally based around the concept of putting different martial arts and fighting styles against each other in competition with minimal rules, in an attempt to determine which system would be more effective in a real combat situation. This was in an effort to answer the age-old question that had plagued martial artists for generations: which style is 'the best'. Finally, in the 90s the question was put to rest, as the world witnessed one confrontation after another going to a grappling type scenario on the ground, and Jiu Jitsu dominating virtually every MMA event. Eventually, strikers would adapt their game to include ground fighting, as well as the ability to prevent being taken down.
Now, MMA refers to the cross training of various arts, like a triathlon of self-defense. As such, modern MMA competition is an evolution of such events, but rules have been implemented to promote acceptance of the sport, while at the same time maintaining as much of the original no-holds-barred concept as possible. Some unarmed hand to hand combat techniques are considered illegal in arguably all modern MMA competition, such as biting, eye-gouging, fish-hooking and small joint manipulation.
